GNU/Linux Command – OGGENC

oggenc — Encode audio into the Ogg Vorbis format.


Ogg Vorbis is a new audio compression format. It is different from these other formats, like MP3, because it is completely free, open and unpatented. It is roughly comparable to other formats used to store and play digital music, such as MP3, VQF, AAC, and other digital audio formats.

oggenc reads audio data in either raw, WAV or AIFF format and encodes it into an Ogg Vorbis stream.

$ locate .wav -- Search for some WAV files in your system. $ oggenc snd.wav -- Produces output as snd.ogg. $ oggenc in.wav -o out.ogg -- Produces output as out.ogg. $ oggenc in.wav -q 6 -o out.ogg -- Produces the output with specified quality, -1 (low) and 10 (high), 3 is default. $ oggenc snd.wav -t "MyTrack1" -a "MyName" -l "MySound" -o snd.ogg -- Add Track info in the output file.
